Martin Brundle split his Jordan in two on the opening lap of the inaugural 1996 Australian Grand Prix at the Melbourne’s Albert Park circuit.
In his maiden outing for the Jordan team, Martin Brundle had what is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular accidents in the history of Formula 1.
Under braking for Turn 3, David Coulthard swerved across the track, and the gap in front of Brundle disappeared in an instant. Launching off the back of Coulthard’s McLaren and Johnny Herbert’s Sauber, Brundle’s car flipped upside-down before landing and barrel-rolling along the gravel trap.
Footage at http://media.theage.com.au/system/ipad/aus-gp-1996-the-martin-brundle-crash-5257557.html AND AT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ausUoOEeGHc shows the Jordan actually splitting in two, yet from all of this Brundle was able to emerge unscathed. Murray Walker exclaimed that it was the “miracle of miracles”.
Now you can own the carbonfiber undertray from this historic accident. The undertray features Coulthard’s tyre mark on the plywood skid plate, heat shielding, sidepod diffuser with fins, gearbox diffuser, canister bracket and sponsors signwriting.
I can also provide a innovative custom designed and built (to your specs) mirrored display cabinet with LED back-lighting to simultaneously reveal detail on rear of the undertray. This could also be built into a wall display. For further details please ring Jon on 0418 547 150 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The starting price is $4,000. Bids to be submitted to email@example.com.
